Hi,

I have heard of this problem, I have found that the sensor near the ice maker is causing this issue. I can only assume you have a newer model because you didn't leave or insert a model number with your inquiry. I am willing to research this if I can get more information from you if you would like. Get back to me and I would be glad to help.

Thanks

As I mentioned before my Maytag was doing the same thing, I called Maytag expecting a big fight but they were really nice about it.
This is a recall problem and even if your warrenty is up Maytag will repair it at NO COST to you.
They shiped me the HV board and sent a repairman who had it fixed in about 10 minutes with a newley designed HV board.

Either the start relay and start capacitor or the Adaptive Defrost control is burned out. If you have a voltage meter we can test a few things like the compressor and the capasitor. The part number for the Adaptive defrost is 241508001 and found inside the fresh food compartment behind the control panel. I can help you locate the problem if you like. Let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Why does my refrigerator keep acting up the freezer gets frosted up then the frig gets warm I have cleaned it underneath unplugged it for 24 hours then plugged it back in it works great for about a w


This problem can have many causes, but generally it is a defrost issue. If the freezer coils are frozen over, they block cold air flow to the refrigerator; and can be caused by different part failures. See the link below for a good explanation of possible failures and for parts. Also, if you turn the refrigerator temp to 0ff and unplug the refrigerator then plug it back in, it should go into defrost mode. Leave it that way for 15 or 20 minutes, then unplug and plug it back in. It may resolve the defrost mode problem. If not you'll need a part, or repair man.

Fault code EF is flashing on my Electrolux fridge FSC23R5DSB6. What does this code mean?


EF on the Electrolux refrigerator digital display means "evaporator fan."

The long answer is, it doesn't necessarily mean there is something wrong with your Electrolux refrigerator.

Turn the power off on the digital display and carefully unplug the refrigerator from the power source. Leave the refrigerator unplugged for three to five minutes. Plug the refrigerator back in and give the refrigerator a few minutes then turn the power button back on. Press the default button on the display and see if the EF code goes away.

Electrolux recommends that you do not plug the refrigerator into an outlet that has a reset button. If your refrigerator is plugged into one of these outlets, try plugging it into another outlet and see if the refrigerator resets itself.

Hope this helps.

No cool what problem?


There could be a few problems. Is there any hum when you unplug it and plug back in after 10 minutes? Can you hear a fan going when it is plugged in and/or a small noise indicating the compressor is running? Are the coils in the back warm on the outside of the unit? Give me a few more details on noises if there are any. Thanks for using FixYa.

This frigidaire (side by side) only blows warm air on both sides


Good day,
First, I would unplug the machine, and then unplug the ice maker. Wait 20 minutes and plug in refrigerator. See if it cools without the ice maker in the equation.
Sounds more like starting components on the compressor, or a compressor starting to fail.
Post back with results.
Thank you.

Fridge and freezer are warm, i can hear a fan running, and i think what sounds like the condenser turning on, theres a click followed by a hum for a few seconds then it shuts off. It repeats this every 30...


at the back of your refrigerator, you will see the motor compressor below, at the side body of the compressor you'll find a small box attached to the body where the wires come in, take out the cover, before doing that, unplug it first. then take the cover out. now plug it, don't touch it.

see if you can hear any click sound then it will shut off. if yes unplug it and take out the overload relay attached to the compressor where the wires are connected. try to replace it, just remeber the wire matching.

Try unplugging fridge for a few minutes then plug back in,if it still does it you could have a relay going out? Also if you have another freezer put frozen items in it and refrigerated items in another fridge unplug othernight then plug back it it could be froze up also when unplugged clean coils with brush and vaccum either underneath or on back,most likely underneath(becarful not to bend anything and make sur unplugged)Try all these tactics before you start changing parts!!!!Best of Luck to You!!!amtnng

Warm Fridge


the defrost timer/ board is getting stuck in defrost and when you unplug it and plug it back in it resets the defrost timer/control board. you may need to replace the defrost timer/control board.

Upper Fridge Too Warm


We had a warm fridge and super cold freezer.....we unplugged for about 20 minutes and the fridge started to cool down again.... but only for a few days then back to warm.

We ended up unplugging and "defrosting" the whole unit for 24+ hours ....Now it works perfectly again.

I think it happens when one or both of the doors is not shut or sealed all the way and engine works too hard and "freezes" up the fans or some other part of the system.......I am just happy I did not have to buy a new fridge.
